Frome Hearts 34 Melksham Ravens 36

Hearts played Melksham recently, determined as ever to get maximum points.

The first stanza saw Melksham take the lead quickly as Hearts took a while to settle in to the game. Towards the last part of that stanza, Hearts really worked well, with brilliant square passing across court to bring the ball up court by WD Freya, C Emma and WA Ellie. This gave the shooters many opportunities to score. The score was 10-8 to Hearts.

The second stanza was very close too. Brilliant defending from GD Bev and GK Jess allowing several turnovers and tips. With continued good play up courts, GA Ness and GS Maddie scored many goals. However, Melksham had a few more goal opportunities meaning they ended this stanza ahead by 18-16.

The third stanza continued to be close, with both teams scoring one after another. The passes into the shooting D were fantastic and shooting was very accurate. Defence carried on with brilliant interceptions. However, Melksham kept in the lead by only 1 goal 26-25.

Into the final stanza, Hearts needed to pick up this one goal! Quickly, it became goal-for-goal, with consistent play from both teams. However, Melksham had a few extra turnovers, meaning they finished the game winners 36-34.
